Have you always wanted to trace your roots and learn more about your ancestors? Wenvoe Community Library is holding weekly drop-in sessions on Tuesday mornings 10:30-12:30. These are for beginners and more experienced genealogical researchers who are willing to exchange tips, strategies, and resources with others in the group in researching their family history. On-line genealogical sources are Ancestry and FindmyPast and are available to the public for in-library use during regular library hours. The library has free Wi- Fi so you are encouraged to bring your laptops/ tablets to share your research with others. A librarian will usually be at hand to cover the basics of how to begin your research, what resources are available and the basic forms and programmes you can use in your family history project. If there is sufficient interest and expertise we can schedule specific topics to be examined in more depth. We would ask for a donation to the community library of £2.00 if you attend this event.

The Easter holiday looms so we are reminding parents that the library is open at its usual times for children to borrow books, DVDs. We are happy for younger children to come into the library and read as much as they want!

We continue to have a selection of books available for purchase from our Book Sales of last year. These have made a real contribution to our being able to keep the library viable.

Don't forget our EASTER RAFFLE which will be drawn on Easter Saturday! The raffle contains a variety of goodies for the Easter weekend and there are three prizes. The draw is planned to be at 1200 and will be a mystery village VIP. We will telephone the winners as soon as the draw is made. .
